    Linux Mint on X205TA

    Hi everyone,

    First of all, many great thanks to harryharryharry and other contributors to succeeding in hardware support on X205TA !!!

    Having finally convinced my wife to use Linux, I tried to install LinuxMint 16.04 (so it's nor so far from Windows) on her X205TA laptop. My searches led me through lots of advices before ending on this amazing thread !
    Unfortunately, I had already installed LinuxMint16.04 with the "classic" .iso x64 file and a bootia32.efi on a USB Stick before I found the harryharryharry's isos...
    • What works :
      • Wifi
      • Sound by speakers

    • What does not work :
      • Sound by headphones or LineOut
      • Hibernation (I read on a recent post that it's never working)
      • Freezing (often when using Firefox)

    • What is not tested :
      • Bluetooth

    • What I have done for that :
      • Installing LinuxMint 16.04 x64
      • Copying nvram* to .../brcm/brcmfmac43340-sdio.txt ... (Wifi)
      • Upgrade from kernel 4.10.0-38 to kernel 4.13.0-41
      • ##### Audio (like in previous TheNightHawk's post)

        sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/alsa/ucm/chtrt5645
        sudo rm -rf /usr/share/alsa/ucm/chtrt5645/{HiFi,chtrt5645}.conf
        sudo wget -O /usr/share/alsa/ucm/chtrt5645/HiFi.conf
        sudo wget -O /usr/share/alsa/ucm/chtrt5645/chtrt5645.conf
      • "blacklist snd_hdmi_lpe_audio" in /etc/modprobe.d/50-x205ta.conf
      • "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash intel_idle.max_cstate=1 button.lid_init_state=open"" in /etc/default/grub
        • does it need another command to work ?

    To be honest, I have no more courage to read the X previous posts in search of answers for my issues (headphones, freezing, hibernation or suspend). If someone knows what to do, I would appreciate.
    If you think it's better to reinstall from one of harryharryharry's (stable) isos, I would understand and do it.
    Many thanks in advance for any help.
